Protein chocolate tahini muddy buddies that are gluten-free grain-free egg-free and low in sugar

We aren’t sure why we are all of a sudden obsessed with muddy buddies. We didn’t really eat them growing up. Strange how tastebuds can change over time. What’s really interesting is that we only started loving (okay obsessing over) tahini just a few years ago. And at first we hated it similar to our experience with coconut oil. Now we can’t get enough of tahini or coconut. We enjoy both of them on a daily basis.

We did enjoy teddy grahams growing up. We loved them. Not only were they cute but we loved the crunch and sweetness. We knew we had to find more ways for us to enjoy all our favorites into one recipe. And this recipe is it!

Taking the classic muddy buddies to a whole new level with using tahini instead of peanut butter and using teddy grahams instead of rice cereal.
